I'll Show You Mine If You Show Me Yours...

...your favourite creations of 2011 that is! I don't necessarily have a favourite for every month a la the lovely Kath but here goes anyway:

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and thanks for looking.

....it's freezing here. Lots of snow and ice - very Christmassy but treacherous. I missed the LIM challenge last week in every sense of the word. So without further ado my entry this week for the music challenge is based on the Beatles song 'Hey Jude'.

I've cut my little monkey and sentiment using my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot programme. I've used kraft card and DP from Fancy Pants designs. With the addition of some googly eyes and a pretty pink bow (in the words of Gordon Ramsay) - done!

The card is for my friend Jude who adores monkeys.

I hope all your Chistmas preparations are on schedule and you get a chance to take it easy next week. For once I'm well ahead - only one present to wrap, finish some hampers and make Scottish tablet (the recipents should make their appointment at the dentist now!).

I'm also entering my card into:

Glitter Geeks - Anything goes
Delightful Challenges - Anything goes

Thanks for looking!

Thank You LIM!

To help us on our way to the finish line of the Christmas card-a-thon those kind ladies over at LIM have themed this weeks challenge as green.

For my entry I've used one of the Doodle Pantry stamps I chose as part of my recent prize. It's been paper pieced with a combination of Summer Driggs Limeade and Shabby Princess Urban Kiwi papers. I've added a little red glitter glue on the berries and a few red gems (I hope that's allowed) and popped the whole wreath up on dimension pads.

I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:

Clearly Inspired - Christmas
Daring Cardmakers - Holly
Poodles Parlour - Christmas

I don't know how you are all feeling at the moment but I for one am thoroughly fed up with bad news. What with the global economy, pension fiddling, murdering thieves who think it is OK to take from those who have worked hard all their lives - where will it all end? How did we get to this place where honesty, fairness and decency seem to be dirty words?

Anyway rant over - thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
